Steam is adding something new called Trading Cards and they're currently adding beta-testers.
Trading Cards are visual cards and you can earn them by playing games on Steam.
Some sets of cards can be turned into badges and/or tradeable community items.
You can earn those cards by playing any of the participating Trading Cards Beta games (full list here)
There's a lot of features, for example craftable game-badges, level ups, an updated profile, emoticons, DLC/Game Coupons, profile showcases and some more, Steam's announcement can be found here.

Well, after messing around with it for a bit, I think it's kinda cool. HOWEVER.

There really needs to be an improvement made as to how cards are dropped. Currently, you can only find 4/8 cards in a set via the drop system, and the rest have to either be purchased on the market or traded for. THIS IS SHIT. DON'T DO IT THIS WAY, VALVE.

That's what they want Trade/purchase the missing cards.

I think i heard something about a whole card collection costing in 57 USD or more. But i am not too sure because i didnt check.

As much as I agree with you, I have to say that it would be pointless to have these trading cards if Valve allowed you to find all 8 just by playing a game. They may as well have just made you get badges after getting all the in game achievements (which I want either way), and not to mention the cards you find are randomized. I've found 2 of the same cards from card drops. So finding 2 of the same cards isn't such a bad thing as long as you know someone who will trade with you. Besides, it's in beta, so they are improving this trading card system and most likely will even after it's finished. I mean I would love to see some trading cards for games that aren't made by Valve other than Don't Starve.

We are alone in the universe,
or we are not.
Both are equally terrifying.

I was working on my TF2 set. So far I have Demoman, Pyro, Sniper, Spy, and Heavy. I'm looking to get Engineer, Medic, Soldier, and Scout.

Nope

I would like to finish my;
Half-Life 2 set (Need Alyx, G-Man, Bring the Fight to Them, Gordon & Alyx)
CS:GO set (Need FBI, Anarchist, SWAT)
Portal 2 set (Need Destruction, Finale, Intro, Mannequin, Underground)

Unfortunately all I have are 2 extra Soldier cards for TF2 and an extra Chell for Portal 2 so I know I'm not gonna get anything out of this
